You remember the White Bronco, don’t you? You know – O.J. Simpson’s getaway car? Nineteen years ago this week, the White Bronco entered into infamy as OJ tried to flee. He didn’t escape his fate. Not then, anyway. He actually did escape his fate later, though, during the ensuing trial. By being found not guilty of the murder of his wife and her boyfriend. Now, in 2013, OJ has a sad little life. In jail, awaiting a judgement on whether he can have a new trial for a mess he got into in 2008 when he was found guilty of breaking and entering.
Enough about OJ. He’s not really worth any more words. But, our Photo of the Week #11 is!
Day 176 of the Voyage of the Tramper 03/05/2013
Trailhead – Zion National Park, Utah
Another notable white vehicle. Not a white Ford Bronco. A white Ford minivan. And, not infamous, just interesting.
A Google search of “White Minivans Against Oppression” turns up nothing at all. So, we think it’s a just a bit of wordplay that doesn’t mean anything. A gently sardonic phrase meant only to adorn the side of said white minivan. Painted on there by an artist with absolutely no respect for the sanctity of the American minivan!
Here’s a couple of shots of more good art on the van:
Thanks, minivan artist, for some interesting pics!
Seen in Cherokee, North Carolina, on Day 64 of the Voyage of the Tramper. 11/17/2012.
Some cities decorate cows, others crabs (like Baltimore). Cherokee invoked the great spirit of the Bear. This one seemed especially apt to commemorate Memorial Day, when we remember and thank all those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country.
In September 2012, David and Jane quit their jobs and traveled the country in their 1957 Yellowstone trailer, mountain biking, hiking, paddling, skiing and learning along the way. We carved out a 6 month sabbatical! It was AWESOME! Now, we’re back home and still blogging about the impact of our fabulous trip. And random stuff…
